Re: why the fuck should arach be suspended for not using fucking capitals????
seconded.

this isn't english school. it's not like arach's posts are unreadable, they're just missing a few caps.

way, way out of line.

Re: why the fuck should arach be suspended for not using fucking capitals????
i agree, it is better for posters to use proper capitalisation and, more generally, correct grammar, punctuation and spelling.

i do not agree that a poster should be banned for not using fucking capitals when their posts are perfectly readable just the same. it is not like arach is posting unreadable gibberish.

Re: Fidelity
I think Moderators should not make changes to the text of any message, whether to add line brakes, fix spelling or alter capitalization.

Fixing markup, or hiding off-topic messages, is one thing. Altering what we actually write is another.
